The name "Raku", the legend is the first generation of Chang Jiro, the son of Ami Ye and his Japanese wife Bhikkhuni Sasaki, was invited to burn the tea pottery in the " Juraku", the residence of Japanese ruler Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The work is called " Juraku ", and his apprentice, the grandson of Qian Lixiu, Chang Qing was awarded the "乐" gold seal by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The tea pottery works burned by the descendants have covered the "乐" seal, which is the origin of " Raku ".
